Don't get me wrong - I love the Jets. But something is a little off.
You see, when you look at the History of the new Jets, you'll see the leading scorer in franchise history is Ilya Kovalchuk, with none other than the immortal Vyacheslav Kozlov in second place, some 199 points back. With a little luck, we can expect to see Tobias Enstrom pass Marian Hossa for 3rd place with 32 more points this season. Exciting, I suppose, but there's something about watching Nik Antropov's pursuit of Ray Ferraro for 9th in all-time 'Jets' scoring that leaves me feeling a bit empty.

Like I’m sure many other Jets fans were doing, I instantly found myself asking one question following the news of Mark Scheifel'es demotion.

In February of 2011 I was in Florida for my honeymoon. I knew I had married the right lady when she agreed to go to a Florida Panther's game - please don't read into the title yet; marrying my wife wasn't a fear based decision.

News today that top prospect Mark Scheifele has been sent to wax on with Dale Hawerchuk has the internet buzzing. With a number of healthy scratches so far this season, Scheifele's return to junior shouldn't shock Winnipeg fans. No doubt we're all a little nervous, though. So let's breathe deep and do some explana-bragging for a minute.

Alexander Burmistrovhas been in a complete slump since the start of the 2013 season and is still trying to find his groove. So far the young Russian centre is nowhere near his point production from previous years and you have to think that this can only last for so long.
Burmistrov reads plays very well and has had time on the Jets penalty kill this year because of the good defensive aspects of his game. He has a ppg average of 0.125 and that particular stat should have people guessing that something will get going with him in the next few games.
